New Die Release From Karen Burniston!

Hi all! I'm so excited to share a card I made with a few of the dies from Karen Burniston's latest release. There are so many incredible dies in this collection - you are going to want them all!

For this card, I used the new Oval Frames Pop Up die, the new Argyle and Party Border Blends, and the Rectangle - Crosshatch die from an earlier release. On the front of the card, I used the Rectangle die to cut a panel of canvas paper. On top I layered a collage paper from Tim Holtz. I used one of the new Border Blends (you are going to LOVE these!!) along the bottom. I used one of the ovals and a frame die from the Oval Frames set for the center embellishment.

Here is the inside of the card - amazing, right?! As you open the card, four oval panels drop down and pop out, and the center two frames form a 3D accordion. You really have to see this one in action! The die set includes a small tree, which I used as branches for the fussy cut birds to perch on. Along the top, I used another one of the new border dies. The frames on the ovals were embossed with silver embossing powder to give them a metallic look.

Here you can get a better idea of how the frames pop out. It's seriously cool and surprisingly easy to use.

Check out Karen's tutorial video on the border dies and prepare to be amazed!!

I hope you enjoyed my first card from this new collection. The dies are available now for preorder and will ship on the 31st.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week!


  1. Beautiful card! I love the silver with the black on the frames. And the cute way the bird sits on the branch.

  2. This card is amazing, wondrous, and beautiful! It makes me want the oval set even though I passed on it in my pre-ordering of dies. Your work is consistently outstanding.

  3. So lovely and tweet. Great new die
